Phil Collins plays well with others

just him playing drums on others people's records....perhaps this is what he should have stuck to and spare us his solo career.
Interesting track listing with some I didn't know he'd played on, but there are some missing ones too and there should be more Brand X....in fact much more 70s stuff in general would have been preferable.

He played drums on and produced "Loco In Acapulco"?

What a cunt.

Why stop there? Where are "Throwing dogshit at Gene Loves Jezebel" and "Laughing my cock off at All About Eve"?

It's a shocker, one of the early fall-from-grace disastrous singles that killed his career.

For all Phil's reputation as a great drummer, I still don't think I've ever heard a particularly stunning example of his stickmanship.

.

He’d already fallen from grace with Prince Charming and Ant Rap, this just continued the descent into crapness

There's nothing wrong with Prince Charming, if you're going to go from underground icon to full-blown pop-star, that's the way to do it. Even "Ant Rap" can be almost forgiven as being "of its time".

His drumming on that Frida single is godlike.

I can only suggest you play "The Carpet Crawlers" or the whole of "The Lamb Lies Down...." He may be a loathsome twat but, as a drummer, he is a Titan.

Yes. 2 CDs of 70s stuff would have great, there's way too much unnecessary filler on the last two CDs. And if they really felt the need to have a Genesis track there why such a lame choice?

I made my own comp with the same theme many years ago. I'll try and find it and see what the tracklisting was as I can't remember off the top of my head.

I think that is a bit harsh.

yeah...it's not quite that, is it?
There is rather a lot of his vocal presence
And apart from And So To F, it's pretty unwelcome too.

The man that wrote "Another Day In paradise" about the homeless and the plight of the country under The Tories - who then , a couple of months later when sa General election was announced- proudly proclaimed that he would become a tax exile if Labour won , because of their tax and social care policies?

I'd think loathsome twat was the very least he deserves.

are you sure about that?
I'd love the see the quote again... it was 29 years ago, that record came out so it has been lost in the mists of time.
If he did indeed take issue with Labour's social care policies, and allowed himself to be quoted on the subject, then he is an idiot.
You couldn't buy that sort of bad publicity

Admittedly from wiki but...

However, Collins has since stated that although he did once claim many years earlier that he might leave Britain if most of his income was taken in tax, which was Labour Party policy at that time for top earners, he has never been a Conservative Party supporter and he left Britain for Switzerland in 1994 purely because he started a relationship with a woman who lived there. He said of Gallagher: "I don't care if he likes my music or not. I do care if he starts telling people I'm a wanker because of my politics. It's an opinion based on an old, misunderstood quote."[272]

Despite his statement that he did not leave Britain for tax purposes, Collins was one of several wealthy figures living in tax havens who were singled out for criticism in a 2008 report by the charity Christian Aid.[273] The Independent included Collins as one of their "ten celebrity tax exiles", erroneously repeating that he had left the country when Labour won the 1997 general election and that he threatened to return if the Conservatives won in 2005.[274] Referring to the 1997 general election in his article "Famous men and their misunderstood politics" for MSN, Hugh Wilson stated: "Labour won it in a landslide, which just goes to show the influence pop stars really wield". He also wrote that Collins's reported comments and subsequent move to Switzerland led to "accusations of hypocrisy" since he had "bemoaned the plight of the homeless in the song 'Another Day in Paradise'", making him "an easy target when future elections came round".[1
